This was the first forum I ever signed up to nearly 13 years ago now. The Harbour used to be so active back around the time Monkey Island 4 came out, now I'm about to make the first post in here for 6 months, it's kinda sad. I also got slightly nostalgic stumbling back here

I know it's a double-post, but what's really depressing is that most of the activity that this forum gets is from spambots.

Come on Disney, license Monkey Island to Telltale again! :(

It's not just that, but social media along the lines of facebook and twitter has for the most part replaced the traditional forum culture. Kinda a bummer at times, but it seems to be the way the winds have blown

I just stumbled upon Lucasforums in the wild and thought I'd poke my nose in here for the first time in a few years. It's never pretty reading forum posts you made in your adolescence. Feeling pretty good about guessing my password after only 4 tries though.

This place is like an abandoned warehouse that somebody still pays the upkeep for.

The Harbour is more like a plague pit where some of the victims occasionally come back to life and stumble around as a zombie for a while moaning about the good old days, with occasional visits from robots hell-bent on giving the rotting corpses free access to the latest films.

Meanwhile, does a fifteen year veteran get a ten year badge? :D

Why is Natty still confused? Someone download a patch for her or something... ;)

Heyo! I'm one of those people that lurked on the World of MI and the SCUMM Bar for years but never joined the forums because my internet made it a crappy experience at the time :P

I'm wondering where all the fan stuff got moved to! :O I used to read a whole bunch of fanfics on the sites but now for all intents and purposes, the MI section of ffnet is dead :/

Yup! XD I can't even remember when I started lurking. I remember the two big downfalls that gave me palpitations on where to find a functioning Monkey Island website XD

...Or was it one great downfall? O_o Curse my memory!!

I miss Paco's comics and Ado's brilliant fanart! :(

In war, you certainly can't say that "everything's fair". We do have laws regulating war crimes, etc..

Likewise, I would very much argue that not everything is fair in matters of love and relationships.

I really hate that saying. And not just my normal base hate, I hate it more than I hate many other things. :P

Yeah, just like how zombie pirates are on life support before they become the unliving scourge of the high seas, sundering life, hope, and happiness in their mad rampage of watery death for all and bugger the living.

North Eastern (specifically Sunderland) word, means "come on", as in get motivated, get your arse into gear etc.

The black and white contingent in Newcastle spell it "howay", but that's just wrong!
